VI.12.2 Pompeii. Mosaic of two tragic masks between a group of flowers, fruits and garlands. 
Found in VI.12.2 as a threshold dividing the fauces (room 53) from the atrium, on 28th October 1830. 
See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p. 290).
Now in Naples Archaeological Museum. Inventory number 9994.
According to Fiorelli, the tablinum was also separated from the atrium, by a mosaic threshold of masks and garlands.
He described this as reputed to be one of the most stupendous works of art, due to the excellence of the design, colours and workmanship.
